One of the best things about being part of The Walking Classroom is the love. Yes, that’s right! Every day is a chance to feel the love — to hear or read about positive experiences with the program.
A whole lot of that love, and some pretty glowing recommendations (if I do say so myself!) come from teachers and students currently using the program. And what better day to share some of that love than Valentine’s Day! Enjoy these sample snippets from the many thank you notes we’ve received this school year.
What the Teachers Tell Us . . .
The whole premise of The Walking Classroom is brilliant. I love that I can find podcasts tied to about everything we are doing. I also love how EASY it is for me to simply copy a quiz into my Google Classroom and turn them loose!
– Shelly Rose, Arizona
I love having the option of taking my students outside for a structured lesson. The follow-up materials and resources are amazing. It’s like taking a field trip weekly.
– Kim Petro, Pennsylvania
My class loves going on walks together and gets very excited when I tell them it’s a Walking Classroom Day. They have also really been enjoying listening to the podcast lessons as they walk.

The students LOVE getting to take their learning outside and being able to get up and move.
– Shelly Abernathy, Georgia
The Walking Classroom resources we received are a lifesaver! Our students love the opportunity to be active while learning, and the teachers love the ease of use and alignment of lessons to their objectives.

This year, I am teaching a group of fourth graders who need to MOVE. They also love to talk, all the time. We took a walk today out in the sunshine (after weeks of rain!) and my class was SILENT, even the kids who are NEVER quiet. They were so content walking and listening to our podcast about figurative language that I didn’t have to do anything but lead them on a path around our school campus.

I love listening to all the podcasts. It keeps me occupied so I can stay focused.

With The Walking Classroom, you learn and exercise at the same time. I love to do both things!
– Daniel, California
I love getting my steps in and learning at the same time.
– Isaac, California
Most of the programs we have in school are pretty bland. At least with The Walking Classroom, I don’t have to stare at a screen the whole time. The program gives us a chance to get out more, and I love that.
– Meleena, Pennsylvania
I love learning about different topics while walking. It really helps me remember the information.
– Kappy, Alabama
I absolutely love The Walking Classroom! It gets my brain going and puts energy in my step. I’d much rather be walking with friends than sitting inside and watching a video.
– Lilly, Pennsylvania
The Walking Classroom makes me feel happy because it is a new way for me to learn and it keeps learning interesting!

I love learning with The Walking Classroom. My work is getting better and better.

Every time I do a podcast, it makes me happy!
